We live in Quebec and it gets really cold out here. Since two weeks the temperature gets around -35C and sometimes my subby won't start.
At first I suspected the battery itself, but when the problem was occurring all the light seemed to be working at 100% of there capacity. I found this detail pretty strange... So to get it run again I boosted it with my other car and then it started and ran good.
This morning I had the same problem, but when I tried to boost the car the started made a little click noise and didn't start and the other car lights were dimming like crazy. I suspected the starter, I hit it with my crowbar and it started right away. Afterwards I went to tim hortons and the car stalled... Trying to start it again, it made the same clicking noise from the starter... I hit it again with the crowbar and it started fine afterwards.
My questions are: Is my problem the starter since the beginning or the battery or both? Should I change the starter? Is it dying or is it because of the cold?
Thanks for your help ;)
